Clinical director Bruce Nevill of Crown Vets, outside what will be the new Highland Vet referrals practice
Crown Vets, a long-standing veterinary surgery in Inverness, has received planning permission to open a new state of the art referral practice, which will serve pet owners across the Highlands and North of Scotland.
Highland Vet Referrals, which will see the existing Crown Vets referrals service relocate from its current site on Argyle Street to a brand new building in the Culduthel area, is due to open during the summer of 2022, creating six new jobs.
The centre will accept patients referred from veterinary practices across the Highlands, particularly pets which need more dedicated or surgical treatment. Crown Vets will then offer an expanded first opinion veterinary service for pets at its Argyle Street premises.
Sandra Campbell, practice director at Crown Vets, said: “We are at maximum capacity at our current first opinion and referrals practice in Argyle Street.
“Our new 3,000sq ft referral practice will include state-of-the-art equipment and extended clinical services including two new dedicated operating theatres, three consulting rooms, separate cat and dog wards and a new CT scanner. The practice will offer pets a wide scope of surgical procedures, including spinal surgery, which has never been provided in the region before.”
Highland Vet Referrals will be headed up by clinical director Bruce Nevill.
